Education

Personal and Social Development Programme is designed to help young people be more in charge of their lives (cognitively, emotionally, behaviourally and socially) by teaching them how to face, understand and deal with a vast range of life situations. The emphasis of our programmes is on fostering personal and social development leading to long term well-being and flourishing. Our package - consisting of teaching materials, students‘ handouts and in-school training - can be tailored to the specific needs of any educational institution. The programme can be delivered to schools (as a part of PSHE), colleges, universities and organisations that specialise in adult education. It can be of various duration and are delivered in several formats:

  • Our certified practitioners can run programmes with pupils and students directly. In this case, the course can take the form of scheduled weekly sessions throughout a whole academic year. Shorter modules (normally lasting 8 weeks), full day workshops or a few hour long sessions on a particular subject are also available.
  • In-house training: we can introduce the programmes and provide the materials for those who would like to incorporate some aspects of the programmes into their existing practices (level 1). We can also train teachers and other practitioners to run programmes on their own (level 2) and eventually train other practitioners (level 3).

Personal Consultancy

Body

Why go for either counselling or coaching, when you can get both? Personal Consultancy is an integrative approach to one-to-one practice that combines counselling and psychotherapy with coaching. The process consists of four stages:

  • At the Authentic Listening stage you will have opportunities to express yourself and share whatever is on your mind. Most of clients find this beneficial but is often not enough on its own. 
  • Rebalancing is about inner work: exploring and working on issues of your choice to archive greater internal balance and harmony. Again, this is very important, but it does not necessarily lead to tangible, visible changes. This stage lays a good foundation for the house, but a foundation is not the house.
  • The Generating stage is about making concrete changes and achieving your goals.
  • We all know from experience, though, that sustaining a change is often a greater challenge than making it, so  the final, Supporting stage is about making the change last. So, Personal Consultancy is perhaps best summarised as a shared journey.
